She was an artist-in-residence at the École des Beaux-arts de Nantes in France. Chan's writing has been published in Afterall Journal, East of Borneo, the Getty Iris, and she co-edits the zine, SABOTEURS. Her projects have been featured in Artforum Critics' Picks, LA Times, Huffington Post, LA Weekly, and on NPR and KPCC. From 2007-2016, she worked in the field of museum education at the New Museum, MoMA, and the J. Paul Getty Museum. Chan was commissioned by LA Metro to create a large-scale public artwork for the future Little Tokyo/Arts District Station, opening in 2022. audreychan.net
